Jonathan Djanogly calls on PM to push for tougher sanctions against Russia


26th March 2014

Following the Prime Minister’s statement on the recent European Council and G7 meeting, Jonathan Djanogly calls on the PM to push for tougher sanctions from the international community against Russia.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con): The Prime Minister’s friend Mrs Merkel and our nation’s very good friend Germany are dragging their feet against countering Russian aggression. I recognise the sterling work done by my right hon. Friend to date, but does he agree that history shows that short-term appeasement of dictators leads to longer-term problems, which means that we should insist on tougher sanctions on Russia and those close to Mr Putin right now?

The Prime Minister: I thank my hon. Friend for what he says. It is absolutely clear that if we do not take robust, predictable and firm long-term action, we will pay the consequences for many years to come, and not just in Europe, because other countries in the world would see the resolve of the international community and of the UN as weak and would draw the conclusions. We are working well with the Germans in trying to agree a common position. So far at European Councils, we have been able to agree some robust measures.
